When I first started my training, it was not to become a healer but that is what was written in the stars.

I knew there was more to life than what I was experiencing; there had to be. I wanted to believe the Universe had a big plan for me, but by the age of 46 it had surely not been revealed… until it was. I quickly learned that life is funny and has way of leading us to where we need to be, even though we might not know it at the time.
I felt there was something special in store for me, but to become an effective healer? That was a surprise, but it was one that I earned.
In 2006 my mother was in an assisted living home for the last year and a half. I had just graduated with my Master of Fine Arts and was living in Idaho with my teenage daughter. Although I had come far in my life, at that moment I felt very stuck.
Then one night, something happened that forever changed my life: my mother came to me in a lucid dream state(!) with a brief message: “Get me out of here.” I remember replying back to her, “How can I get you out of there when I can’t get myself out of here?”
After that my mother showed up in my dreams quite a bit. Even though we had our difficulties growing up, she and I were extremely close. She was the one who spoke of fairies, past-lives, astrology and psychics. I loved her dearly and still do.
After a month of these dreams I called an old friend who told me I needed to work with a Shaman.
I had never really heard of Shamans other than Native American Indians. But I felt so unhappy at that point I was willing to do anything, so I made an appointment with a woman in Chile, not even truly believing if she could help me over the phone, let alone in person. My friend had explained that it works because it’s just energy. Since I believed in energy I trusted the process.
The Shaman found something amazing: a contract I had made with my mother in a past life. The contract was that I was to never leave her side. She asked me if I felt it was appropriate to break the contract and I was willing do so. This was a very difficult choice because I felt I may never see my mother again in future lives.
But that fear was gently nudged to the side by something stronger, the voice from my soul. It told me it was the right thing to do right now, so I said “Yes.”
Within one month my mother transitioned peacefully in her sleep.
When I moved back to California in late 2006 I began taking Shaman classes and learning more about releasing energy. My experiences (including a near death experience on the operating table), were so profound there was no denying that energy medicine worked.
I realized that all my challenges and hardships brought me to where I am today. I am grateful for my story. It is my story and I worked hard for it.
I started to become aware of a calling: to become a healer of others. If I could help people navigate what I’ve been through, I knew that would fulfill the deepest purpose within me besides raising a child. So I stepped onto that path and have never looked back.
If you feel the healers path is for you, I invite you to take this short quiz.
- Do people often come to you for advice? YES NO
- Are you aware of how others are feeling? YES NO
- When you walk into a room can you sense the energy? YES NO
- Have you always felt there was something more for you in life? YES NO
- Do you want to help others and make the world a better place? YES NO
If you have answered yes to two or more of these questions, then the healers path is the one for you, and I recommend you seek a training program to begin this important phase of your life.
My next year-long four-part healer training starts April 6th-9th and meets every 3-4 months. You have to be ready to do the inner work because we must heal ourselves first in order to become clear channels for others’ healing.
